The church is a monument of culture dating from the late 3rd and early 4th century. It's a part of a larger archaeological complex, located under the central streets of the capital. Over the millennia, is being used as a social, religious and residential building. You can enjoy beautiful mural paintings.

It is very, very old. So you shouldn't miss it, you rarely have the chance to visit anything so ancient!

This is a must-visit in Sofia. It's the oldest church in Sofia, having been built in the 4th century, and it is exceptionally well preserved for such an old building. It can be a little difficult to find (it's inside the presidential complex behind a security gate), but if you take the free Sofia walking tour they'll take you right by it. Outside the church are some more ruins from the ancient Roman city of Serdica. It's fairly small, and I would try to read up on the history and frescoes before entering as it will make the experience more worthwhile.

This place is amazing just a few blocks from the city center you find this church. Right in the middle of the city. The contrast between the old and the new is incredible. I really enjoyed it.
